I lied on the ground at my local park and one of these fellows came pretty close to me, actually too close. Lucky, MFD on 100-400 is quite low.







Tough not to over-expose the bill. Shooting in RAW helped.

Bobbyz, Nice close ups.
The coot in picture one is living my worst nightmare. I am having my portrait taken and I discover too late that I have lettuce in my teeth in all the pictures. :-)

Since I see shadows and I don't live all that far from the Bay Area I will assume that these were taken a day or two ago before the torrents of rain?

I love the detail,
Steve

Thanks smac, these were taken last weekend. There was a bit of sunshine in between all this rain.

Yikes, I agree it's the spinich in the teeth nightmare. Wowzers on the detail. So how did it feel to have one land on your chest? Nicely done.
